? >> machine guns have been banned for 30 years. not any weapon is appropriate for self defense in the home. all the supreme court said is that you have a right to have a handgun in your home for self defense. they didn't say you have a right to have any kind of gun like an assault weapon and didn't say you have any right to take that gun out on to the public street and carry it with you. there are still a lot of questions to be answered by the supreme court on the scope of the second alternate. at least today as we understand it it does not ban from limiting magazines. >> background searches, limiting sale of semiautomatics and restrictions on hidden carry you don't think would be barred by the constitution. >> i don't think any of those restrictions are likely to be struck down by the supreme court. may be the biggest is the right to carry concealed weapons on the street. the supreme court said the right to bear arms is the right to carry arms but didn't make conditions. it's important to me the supreme court will say the government can require a license for anyone who wants to carry a gu
